linger


Leaves may fall
Winds may change
luster fades
but one thing is certain
one thing is true
three words are constant…
they will never change

And so it continues
one day after another
one foot after the other
grays softly get technicolor
but they won’t sparkle again
not like your smile
not as the sun that opens in your eyes

So what becomes of me?
just be at a standstill
waiting for that day
the day you return
I will wait for you, child
I will wait for the day our world becomes one
I will linger
